Arch Canopy

(most popular)

Our bread and butter design, we designed this style over 20 years ago and have been installing thousands for happy customers ever since.

Sharma Arch

Named after our brilliant Design & Production Manager, this design is offers a hybrid between our popular arch canopy and lean-to style. Combining the best of both worlds & maintaining a lean-to look, while still allowing an increased sense of space

Slim Arch

Our latest design has a minimal curve and is suitable for smaller canopies, and those seeking a lower profile. The Slim Arch suits most house styles, and is growing in popularity.

Scallop Edge

A popular option for the front edge of our canopies, the scallop edge gives a dynamic ‘shade sail’ look and feel to the canopy. Fabric is tensioned to the arch using extremely strong eyebolts.

Free Standing

When there is no existing structure to attach the canopy to, a free standing canopy is a great option which still offers the same robust strength as attaching to a building. This is a great option in several scenarios such as car storage, playground covers, outdoor seating, and pool covers.

Flat (Lean to)

This café style design has become increasingly popular in recently years, especially used in the hospitality industry for restaurants and cafes. Lean to canopies are also sometimes prefered in the residential setting, where it may suit the house better than an arched canopy.

Multi Arch

Often used to connect two areas or over large spans. Our canopies are designed in way where an additional canopy can often be attached at a later stage if required.

Hip roof

Useful in situations where building roof is a triangle shape.


This sleek looking design is often used to cover seating areas, popular with bowls clubs, or swimming pool areas.
